My heart breaks for Officer Denzinger's Family. My son has been Eternally On Watch from Heaven since April 21, 2004 but June 19th he would have been 30 years old. He was blessed with 3 young children, a wife, sister, brother and parents and the list goes on. It breaks my heart to hear this has happened. I pray and cry for you all. In time you will find it easier to remember how he lived and not how he died. He will always be a Hero and an Angel. God Bless you all.

I am sooo sorry for your loss. My heart aches for you and your family. Peace Officers leave everyday not knowing what the day will bring...the families always pray that they will come home safe, fearing there will be a knock on the door...and pray that it will never happen. To his wife Tara, and daughter Avery, please know you have soo many people praying for you and your family, hoping that God will touch your hearts and ease the pain. God Bless....

I've shed so many tears for you and Avery, Tara. This week has once again connected all of us. We all know when we kiss our husbands goodbye that this could be us. I'm sorry it had to be you. I'm so glad you have strong women like Rebecca there in this time of great suffering. It is a common bond that comes from great tragedy. But what peace it is to know that when someone says "I understand", they truly mean it. I pray God wraps His arms around you and your daughter in this time of your greatest need.

Your husband will NOT be forgotten. We can all assure you of that. Everytime mine puts on his uniform from this day forward, you will be there. Your daughter will be there. Always.

I hoped with Peter that I'd never witness such tragedy in our community again. Peter was a gentle and kind man. He was funny. I can still remember the last time I saw him and the funny experience we had. When we said goodbye to him, I hoped we'd never ever experience something so close to home again. But we did. And we WILL get through it, together. You are not alone and we won't let you be. And like you said in your interview, you are too stubborn not to get through this. I'm positive that's something Frank loved most about you.


June 23, 2007

Tara, my heart goes out so deeply for you as memories come rushing back to me. Your husband is a true hero. You are not alone in your sorrow. I was left with an 11 month old son when my husband, officer Jason Cammack, was killed 7 years ago. All this now, will be a blur to you, so many events you will never remember, some etched in your mind forever. With tears I pray for you and your daughter, so beautiful, and family.
For me, many officers said that Jason died doing what he loved as I am sure your husband loved his job too...but he also loved you and your daughter...hold on to that and know he will always be watching over you, holding you both close.
I hope a portion of this poem below will help you. I put it on my husband's headstone because it brought me some peace. The poem is by David Romano.I just knew it was what my husband would say if he could. The complete poem can be found online.
"If tomorrow starts without me" is the title of the poem.

I wish so much you wouldn't cry
The way you did today,
While thinking of the many things,
We didn't get to say.

I know how much you love me,
As much as I love you,
and each time that you think of me,
I know you'll miss me too.

But when tomorrow starts without me,
Please try to understand,
That an angel came and called my name,
And took me by the hand,
and said my place was ready,
In heaven far above,
And that I'd have to leave behind
All those I dearly love.

I will be sending you a card with contact information if you need to talk.

To the officers of the Floyd County Sheriff Department, you will never forget Officer Denzinger, your wounds will heal and you will go on. I speak from personal knowledge in 2003 my department lost an officer in the line of duty. Each day I think of Officer Mundo and each day you will think of Officer Denzinger you just need to learn to go living working hard the things he would want you to do the things he would do if he was the one still here.

To the family keep Frank's memory alive by talking about him every day, the good times you shared and this will help you heal. Tell his daughter about him often and when she is old enough tell her who her daddy was and what he stood for. My heart goes out to each and every one of you.
